problems, too. >> and limbaugh whines he was compared to nazis and then a moment later compares his critics to nazis. all that and more now on "countdown." >>> good evening from new york. at some point in the future you or a loved one will be dying. you will want to know all the options and their implications. thanks to the republican party today, sarah palin, senator chuck grassley and others, thanks to them, if you cannot afford to have your doctor at your side for those questions, you will face death on your own. how sarah palin's functional illiteracy and senator's dysfunctional pandering just killed reimbursement for end of life counseling. senator grassley, top republican of the finance committee put out a statement today saying, quote, we dropped end of life provisions from consideration entirely because of the way they could be misinterpreted. misinterpreted, of course, by him. deliberately to his constituents. on tape. as, quote, death panels. quoting the aarp a sensationalized misinterpretation of a common sense compassionate and bipartisan measure. a misinterpretation that the go
of the family but it also happens to save everybody a lot of money. mr. limbaugh was perfectly happy to read on-air advertisements for a company that has wills and living wills. just like advance directives, just like end of life counseling is an unequivocally good thing. which brings us back to the cluster fox nonsense that is glenn beck. after he called president obama a racist with, quote, a deep seated hatred for white people, his advertisers fled. the latest, conagra, roche, radio shack bringing the total to a dozen advertisers who have dropped beck. he remains on the air for now able to preach the same lies about health care reform but congressman rick larsen of washington has a perfect rebuttal as displayed in larson's recent town hall meeting. >> now, folks will say that's not true but i've got facts on my side and you've got glenn beck on your side. >> my hero. as for mr. beck's hypocrisy on the subject, as assembled by "the daily show" here is mr. beck lately. >> america already has the best health care in the world. we do take care of our sick. you're about to lose the best health ca
opinion. they're discrediting themselves. risch lum b ris rush limbaugh has an audience who likes to listen to that kind of -- let me not characterize rush limbaugh, but it's becoming more and more limited audience. i think the vast majority of the american people want something done. they know we're trying to do the right thing, and they certainly don't want this country to be guided by the likes of rush limbaugh and that kind of nonsensical rhetoric. >> congressman, you mentioned your decades of experience in washington. it seems to be your sense by what i'm hearing that you do not believe then that this is a grassroots effort, that you believe this is being orchestrated. who do you think is behind it all? >> i think the industries that have benefitted from the status quo, some of the insurance companies, certainly some of the very conservative groups who don't want change. they're opposed to government involvement. now -- and it's easy for the american people to pick up on that. in fact, i have had people say to me, keep the government off my medicare. well, of course, medicare

limbaugh and fox news defend crazy woman. you are watching "countdown" on msnbc. >>> back when bugsy and meyer lanceky began to build their vegas gambling operations the website daily beast reports even these mobsters considered it cheating to make more than 20 cents profit on every dollar spent by gamblers. the insurance companies already make almost 20 cents profit on every dollar you pay in premiums but health care reform will change that. how? the senate is debating whether or not to make you pick up as much as 35 cents of every dollar billed by your medical providers. in vegas they used to call casinos that made more than 20% profit a flat store. the flat store reputation was the kiss of death because gamblers knew they'd get better odds elsewhere. today nevada regulations restrict casinos to a max of 25%. new jersey casinos take home no more than 17% profit by law. why is the senate finance committee run by democrat max bachus considering making even americans who have insurance pay 35% of their medical bills? according to "business week" quote united health group urged a more

limbaugh or anne coulter or michelle malkin. he is a united states senator. there should be certain things he does not do or say. >> do we assume in both of these cases somebody got to them both in isakson's case and in grassley's and said if do you not repudiate what you seem to have said yesterday this good behavior, this societally cognizant willingness to compromise, if you don't do that we'll never contribute to you again? >> well, remember. senator grassley has received over $2 million from the drug and health insurance industry since 2003. but equally troubling, keith, is the fact that senator bachus has received $1.5 million just in the last two years so there are people who can really do everything they can and use fear to undermine reform. that's why we haven't had reform for so many years. >> could there be a silver lining in this, arianna? with the senator embracing supposedly the good senator among the republicans embracing the death panel nonsense could that be a tipping point in terms of freeing democrats from this nonsense waste of time, you can't talk sense to a stone, fal

and john than. the other day rush limbaugh said i had done something he would have got in trouble for. please explain. i said that last year ted kennedy passed the torch of the kennedy brotherhood to barack obama making him the next kennedy, and it was so clear to everybody that's what was going on. he said if he had said something like that he would have been accused of making an ethnic slur because i used the word brother. i point out -- i said it at the time. not in an ethnic sense, not in a richelle sense, brother in the sense of sibling brother, actual brother. he jumped up and made himself into a victim again. what is the matter with these people? can't they take a week off? just take a week off. it's a funeral. take a week off from politics. >> if ted kennedy is one of the great senators of our time, rush limbaugh takes the crown as the great blowhard of our time. there's nobody who would have criticized rush limbaugh if he had talked about a brother because there's so many other things to criticize him for, other outrageous things that he says almost every day on the radio. so
the right thing or not? let's take a look at rush limbaugh today and what he had to say about the democratic party. >> right out of adoofl hitler's playbook. now, what are the similarities between the democrat party of today and the nazi party in germany? well, the nazis were against big business. they hated big business, and, of course, we all know that they were opposed to jewish capitalism. they were insanely irrationally against pollution. they were for two years mandatory voluntary service to germany. they had a whole bunch of make work projects to keep people working, one of which was the autobahn. they were against cruelty and viv vi section of animals, but in the radical sense of devaluing human life they banned smoking. they were totally against that. they were for abortion and euthanasia of the undesirables as we all know, and they were for cradle to grave nationalized health care. >> i do not know where to begin, but i'm going to start with bob shrum. bob, i thought i heard everything. they are insanely against pollution. well, there you have it. anybody who is against pollution i

with the moderates, but 75% of the republicans really sided with the rush limbaugh side of the party, and i think not only is this bad for republican prospects in terms of trying to change the demographics, which are increasingly moving against them. this is another issue the republicans had no compelling reason for voting the way they were voting. >> i think there were real reasons. republicans kept asking the question about the wise latina comment because they never got a full answer. if they had gotten a full answer, perhaps that might have changed things. certainly republicans have had problems appealing to certain groups but you're not going to appeal to any group whether it's african-americans, hispanic-americans or anybody else by selling out your principles. voters don't respect that. >> but it was the fact that the republicans seem to harp on such an insignificant thing, the wise latina comment, when sam alito had made similar comments and didn't have much else to do to go after her in the hearing. so they're the ones that elevated race much more so than the democrats did. >> again -- >>

to identify the people with the legislation. >> savannah, we saw rush limbaugh, among others, sean hannity as well, begin in fact to criticize the notion that some democrats would call on other democrats to support ted kennedy's legacy and pass health care reform. do you expect that call will be made more formally for democrats and even some republicans? if so, do you think it will be effective? do you think he will have a gipper like opportunity? i have to ask you to hang on one moment. mark sanford is speaking, lieutenant governor has formally called on him to resign. sanford rejected that yesterday but we're going to hear what he has to say right now. >> i wanted to very briefly offer a couple of comments in light of a letter that we sent, our office sent back to david thomas yesterday. it really fits in this larger category of the response i gave yesterday to andrew bowers letter to my office in which in that letter i basically said two things. i said, one, let's not make decisions based on hyperbole, media accounts. let's make decisions on facts. two, when one looks at facts we have a
't want to to find whack jobs at home just like they don't want to go against rush limbaugh. on one hand they are saying the democrats are making an issue of it, on the other hand, you have a legitimate birther people who, i think are crazy, but not one single republican member willing to say, you know what? this is ridiculous and we need to move on. you can't really have it both ways. >> john boehner said as much two days ago, but the near fact that karen thinks we should be talking about this -- >> i don't think we should be talking about it. you are more concerned about getting licks against the president rather than solving problems. chris wanted to talk about it. >> just a minute, todd. why do you think roy blunt is out there pushing this issue? we can show it again if you would like, but he wants to see the president's birth certificate. he was up there on the platform during inaugural day. why didn't he come down to ask the guy about to be sworn in to see his birth certificate. why is he doing this now? >> i have no answer. the national review, which is hardly a left wing publicat
at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
this into people's heads. have they not? >> yes, they shout all day, rush limbaugh and all of rest of them, that this is a trojan horse for a single payer plan, and it is, you know -- it is possible that over time, this will morph into something that resembles single payer, but it's not right now, an the insurance companies are in no danger of going out of business under this bill, under any version of this bill. so if we do end up with a single payer plan, it won't be for many, many years, and people argue to the contrary are just lying about the particulars of this program. obama by design did not move to single pay because he realized that the country wasn't ready for it. >> we have news that cash or clunkers has just passed which we'll get to detail the ex-next a minute. this last piece of tape, the heart of the thing. the last question went into a log diatribe asserting the president would somehow get his legislation passed without congress. just go and make it happen, he's dictator obama not the president, and she ended with this piece of tape. >> i don't believe sincerely -- i don't
blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's
